Do you ever have a model that refuses to rebuild?

No matter how many times you click the traffic light or smash CTRL-Q Solidworks does nothing.


You may have to open up a sub or component and force rebuild all configs.


It's a frustrating and non-productive experience.


It happened to me this morning and I was not happy...  then I remembered John Stoltzfus had told me about a SuperRebuild macro he uses...  and he was kind enough to send it right over.


I gotta say in an ideal world we wouldn't need this, but it works an absolute treat!


I noted the macro was written in 2004 and used a few obsolete methods, so I gave it a facelift.


John says it's ok to share it and I hope I didn't add any bugs.


Here's a video of it working.


In the assembly shown SW was content with rebuilding just 1 of 4 configs - CTRL-Q did nothing


Solidworks SuperRebuild Macro to the rescue!
